Unofficial NES30 Bluetooth Gamepad Brings Back The 8-Bit Style

NES30-Bluetooth-Control-PadLet's face it, modern gamepads just don't have the same feel to them any more. While they may be the most comfortable controllers to date, long gone is that feeling of holding a blocky and somewhat uncomfortable accessory. The newly released NES30 Gamepad, however, intends to fix this...

Created by 8Bitdo, the NES30 is a brand new bluetooth gamepad compatible with a whole range of devices including iOS, Android, Windows and Mac. Featuring the same unergonomic design of the Nintendo NES control pad, the NES30 introduces an additional two buttons to the front face and two shoulder buttons.

Gamers wanting to get the most out of their mobile devices can also make use of the NES30's compatibility with touchscreen simulation controls. The NES30 simply mimics the various on-screen buttons and replicates your fingerpresses in action.

This glorious celebration of the 8-bit console's 30th birthday may not be licensed by Nintendo, but it sure does recreate everything we know and love about the system's controller. Retailing at €39.99, the NES30 is already out of stock in most places and proving a must have for retro gamers.
